I’ll admit, I’ve never been the best at skincare. I wash my face in the shower, but I never really stuck with a routine that involved moisturizer or exfoliators or serums. I finally ordered a full skincare set that I can’t wait to receive (more details about that to come), but in the meantime, I thought I’d share with you the nightly “serum” I’ve been using that keeps my skin hydrated during these cold to warm winter days.
Each one of the items listed below comes in glass containers (with plastic caps) that can be reused to make new serums, diffuser blends, etc. If you’re interested in reading about more up-cycling for these small glass containers, let me know!
You can multiply this recipe by X amount of days and store it in a separate bottle to avoid having to mix it every night. Simplifying your routine often makes it easier to stick to it!
